Providenciales home to the majority of the development in the Turks and Caicos, and consequently supports the best supermarkets and groceries stores in the country.
Much of the food in the Turks and Caicos is directly imported from Florida, so many brands and items are American products. Due to our luxury tourism market, several stores also carry organic, gluten-free, and specialty foods and international ingredients.
There are some imports from neighbouring Caribbean countries as well, so it’s possible to find Coca-Cola made with real cane sugar!
Graceway Gourmet is within walking distance of many of the Grace Bay resorts and accommodations. This store isn’t quite as large as the supermarkets in central and Downtown Providenciales, yet it offers a great range of high quality and organic foods, as wells as a selection of prepared foods, sandwiches, salads, and pizza. The prepared food can be served as take out, or there’s an outdoor dining patio with chairs and tables. This store stocks a great selection of wine and alcohol.
Unlike in some American states, there's no law against selling alcohol (including wines and liquors) at grocery stores. However, it should be noted that alcohol sales are prohibited on Sundays (it's still possible to purchase alcohol on Sunday in bars and restaurants).
The best price on the island for beer is the local Turk’s Head by the case (amber, lager, or IPA) bought at its source at the Turk's Head Brewery.
The Turks and Caicos is generally an expensive destination, and our food prices are no exception. Costs tend to be equal to or a little more than what’s found at expensive cities such as New York.
